What Innovators &
Say About Us


What we find unique about this competition is the fact that Novus understands and addresses the fact that lot of youngsters out there lack the skillset and the experience to bring their idea into reality and providing them with the mentor sessions by industry experts who played a vital role of bringing the idea out of the bubble and into the real world. We were really excited to showcase our idea in front of the globally acclaim jury and are grateful for Novus & Faurecia for providing us with this beautiful opportunity.
